Politicians who fiddle their expenses, sell themselves to corporations, govern on behalf of the rich.
Bankers who trash the economy, then pay themselves huge bonuses.
Crusading journalists who hack the phones of the people they're supposedly crusading for.
Police who hassle minorities, kill on our streets and then (routinely) lie about it.
And all these people- these corrupt, unpleasant, not particularly gifted people- are tied up together in a cats cradle of influence and back-scratching and mutual loathing.
And they dare to ask us to show some respect?
